Hypothetical question

Would you trade Gomez and Drury for Jagr and Avery?

Disregard money, contacts and other business. Just who would you rather have next season wearing Ranger sweaters.

I'd say YES!!!

I wouldn't trade Dawes for Avery and Jagr.


At this point, I wouldn't trade Prucha for them.

Interesting question. I think most people were advocating the transition of this team over to Drury and Gomez simply because those are the players signed to 7 and 5 year deals, respectively. Like it or not, we're stuck with them.

I love Jagr...best player of the group by a longshot still...but I never understood all the hoopla with Avery, whose best attribute was his entertainment factor.

Despite both being overpaid, Id still take Gomez and Drury....age and much more talent than Avery being the deciding factors.

My #2 centre would be Avery. We got Fritsche, did we not? Sundin is still available, Dubi could play 3rd.

if we included contracts than yeah b/c we get out of one awfully horrendously bad deal, and another pretty bad deal. Jagr would be gone after a year, and Avery would probably be bought out or traded after two years.

We could sign Sundin to center for a year or 2, and incorporate some youth, and teach them a puck possesion game, and not a dump chase lose puck game. We would have a ton of room under the cap to make other deals, signings. All in all I think it would be great.

If you do not include contracts... Hell no.

Yes we got fritsche, so what? What has he proved? Dubi at 3rd? Dubi is much better suited for 2nd line center than Avery is.

I agree. We got Anisimov too. That should be his breakout year.
I don't care about Avery fireworks. Never was big fan of his mouth, there are better fighters in the league as well. We were better with him in lineup because due to Straka's lingering injury Avery was our best LW all season. I could switch him for Gomez any time.

The question should be "would you have signed BOTH Gomez and Drury to 7 million dollar a year contracts?" to which the answer should be no.

Why are people still living in the past?

Jagr & Avery are gone, maybe it's time we all get behind our new guys instead.

FYI - Avery has a NTC in his contract with Dallas.

As to the original question... heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeells no.

even so... Avery is the type of player who you would never want to give a NTC to b/c chances are you are going to want to get rid of him in a couple of years b/c of his antics.
